Structured software testing: ISTQB Foundation level


Software Testing is part of the development life cycle. Testing has become indispensable when it comes to assess the quality of the software product and to help making the right management decisions.

The course will provide insight in the fundamentals of testing: what is testing and why should one test, the fundamental test process, what it is and how the different steps in the process map on different software development models. It will also explain the different test levels (or test phases) and test types.

After this overview of the fundamental test process, techniques will be presented on how to perform static and dynamic testing. These techniques are useful for both the developer and the tester.

Some objectives for test management will be presented, covering topics like organising your testing and test team, planning the test process, monitoring and controlling the progress and reporting about these. It will also give some background on risks and how to control them.

And to conclude, an overview of different test tools will be provided, with benefits and risks and a way to introduce such a tool into an organisation.

Please note that this course does not focus on a specific project (Prince2, PMP, ...) development (RUP, XP, DSDM, ...) or test (TMap, TestFrame, STBox, ...) methodology, the principles taught here can be applied to any existing methodology.

This training, which is officially called ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL), is accredited by ISTQB. Tesco will be able to organise the exam corresponding to this course.

Main topics

The course is structured the same way as the ISTQB Foundation syllabus and the ISTQB Foundation book. This way the students are able to relate the topics covered in the course to both the syllabus and the book.

  • Introduction to software testing.
  • Fundamental test process & psychology of testing.
  • Testing identified within different software development models & maintenance testing.
  • Reviews and static analysis tools.
  • Black box, white box and experience based test design techniques.
  • Test management: organising, estimating, planning and controlling your test process.
  • Tool support: how can tools support your test process.

Intended for

  • Everyone new to the testing business
  • Experienced testers who require a theoretical background
  • Developers interested in testing.
  • Project leaders/managers requiring more insight in testing
  • Everyone who wants to prepare for the ISTQB Foundation examination in software testing


Having general system development skills is helpful.

Training method

Intructor-led classroom training with practical labs. Optionally, the exam can be taken at the end of the third course day for an additional fee. Alternatively, a computer-based exam can be scheduled on a date and location of choice through www.2test.com.
